growth for periods up to 45 years. and the difference compared to redevelopment is property taxes are divided into a number of recipients the state gets a property tax dollar and the remaining $0.10 is divided up between the school district and community college district. and under an infrastructure financing district typically the only increment that can be captured is the $0.65. you can't capture the money it goes to schools or to the community college district. so it's property taxes can be used to a finance infrastructure through bonds or on a pay as you go basis. the ports are structured a little bit differently. redevelopment focused on providing affordable housing. by state law 20 percent of the increment must be spent on parks, bay assess and the remove of bay fill. as you know there's significant historic contamination along the port property. so in 2005 is when we first went up to try to develop the tool and it was really based on the work that the director and cf o director did in the first 10 year capital plan. the plan says the structural financial plan is not in its
independently to layering subsidies on tax credit buildings, so the lovely new accessible housing that is developed is actually affordable to folks at the lowest income levels so just like we target homeless folks and layer subsidies in order to address the priority we could layer subsidies on tax credit buildings and get some of that accessible housing which is not affordable to our folks. maybe we can by layering some city subsidies on. there are other ideas that we've had like having a centralized data base around the affordable housing opportunities so people didn't need to run to a multd tude of housing providers and figure out the wait list for the building. there is no centralized data base. there are a ton of other ideas and i just want to reference some of the planning documents that maybe good reading for you. there is everything from the consolidated plan -- >> oh came back on. sorry for some reason it went off but it's back. >> there is the consolidated plan that the city is required to be eligible for hud funding. this is the analysis of impediments and looks at
on the first read. item 18. >> item 18 is a resolution approving the issuance of tax exempt obligation by the california enterprise development authority in an aggregate principal amount not to exceed 9 million to finance and refinance various capital facilities owned by the progress foundation. >> same house same call? this resolution is adopted. [gavel] >> item 19. >> item 19 is an ordinance [speaker not understood] general fund reserve of approximately 4.3 million to support shortfalls in the sheriff's department for fiscal year 2012 through 13. >> supervisor farrell. >> thank you, president chiu. colleagues, this is a supplemental that came before our budget and finance committee last week from our sheriff's department. it's the third supplemental we've seen this budget season. the first of the public defenders which is going to be coming back for another hearing soon and second obviously the department of public health supplemental. the reason for the supplemental were twofold. one, unknown workers' compensation costs due to a few big claims that were not predicted last year as we
that remain. so an ongoing tax revenues and the port seeking to do the appropriate upgrade to a be able to host the events. i think the port expanded the cycle of their activities. and that was evaluated through the improved use of the ports facilities. at that point there have been a number of agreements about how certain things were going to be paid for during the events and preparations for the events and then on the capital side for narrow improvements that weren't going to be paid for by the ports. those are around pier 29 facility. so together and this is going to be used fulfill looking it now we've seen approximately $3.3 million of costs that the general costs were going to pay from lost rents from lost tenants and other consulting costs. of that amount $300,000 has been paid to the port and has been compensated. so what's the next step? after the america's cup events in 2012 we learned what with your not only what with your doing with the fundraising but to bring people to san francisco. on the fundraising front the mayor lee in particular and his staff really sort of working
afternoon commissioners tom exclusive demeanor of living city. i was on the sales tax committee and we put a lot of money towards budget transportation projects in san francisco. i see that i think incredible strongly that this plaza should be an open space. you've got a train running underneath us right now. we built the water front street car we're expanding ferry operations out here. it's a transit rich place probably in the entire continent. if there was an activation project we've been all for it it should be an open space. unfortunately we've got a parking proposal. every week day it will be parking for 12 hours so when it's not programmed the default is parking. let's take a space not dedicated to parking and turn it into a parking lot that will generate thousands and thousands of trips so people walking and cycling will having have all those cars and it will be less safe. it's not in keeping with any of your plans. i've included some policy plans there i was hoping the staff would have policy. it's a lost opportunity. it should really, really be a great open space. we've consistent
for having this hearing today. i'm going to focus on prop k in particular which is the half cent sales tax for transportation in san francisco. however, there are a lot of funding programs that are available to address pedestrian safety, and the challenge is how to balance the various opportunities to address it in a strategic manner. is there enough funding? no. but i think we have an opportunity with the strategy to figure out the ways to address the highest need areas in a strategic way. in the past there hasn't been a clear vision how to put together the program of projects so what we're looking for with the five year prioritization programs is moving in the right direction to link transportation investments and the efforts of the pedestrian safety task force with safety goals and prop k is flexible in that regard. it can fund basically all of the transportation infrastructure improvements that you heard discussed today. tomorrow you have continental walks and safe to routes program and next month curb signals and curb ramps. we leverage federal and state grants for all of these p
, business tax reform, one of those eternal debates at city hall about how do we actually move forward forming our business tax. we were able to put that 09ctionv ballot and it passed overwhelmingly. the debate on tics has been going on for a long time and it's one of those eternal debates at city hall. and i am pleased that we potentially have a resolution that will balance the needs of our many citizens this this -- or many residents, i should say, of this city, whether renters or tic owners, being able to find that common ground. ~ in this i will note to those who have been critical of the legislation that supervisor farrell and i introduced, i'll be honest, i didn't see very much dialogue about how to move forward to resolution before the legislation was actually pending. sides were extremely polarized and there was no -- i don't think that there was any meaningful discussion of how do we come up with some sort of legislation that everyone can live with and move forward. we now potentially have that. and sometimes even though ideally you want to work things out and come forward and
tax on the poorest of san francisco citizens. let me tell you, recently i ran into a san francisco resident and citizen who hasn't been to a library in more than 7 years. and that's because this person lost a borrowed videotape. the bill for the replacement was more than this person could afford to pay and there was no payment plan offered, no reduction offered, and no alternative to payment. or some way to work it out, for example, by volunteering to help the library or the public in some way. seven years of no library use because of one lost video. the point of the story is that fines and fees are a huge barrier to library use and the library in part recognizes that by giving kids free fines and seniors half off the usual adult 10 cents a fine. but those barriers should be removed entirely and that's something that you can [inaudible]. thank you. >> thank you very much. next speaker. if you could please speak on the microphone. that's on the overhead. thank you. >>> hi, my name is neil dahani. i sit on the board of san francisco beautiful and also the neighborhood association no
a year for the economy and job revenue and tax revenue and this improves night life in san francisco and entertainment in general even if it's not at night and ensure that venues act responsibly and this commission and staff can fulfill your charter mandated responsibility to regulate the industry appropriately. legislation has three broad aims. first it increases access to live music as well as dj music through improvements to the permitting process and the creation of new permits. it gives the commission and director better tools for bringing venues into compliance when they're not in compliance and has significant clean up and clarification language and we worked closely with the executive director to come up with those provisions. more specifically the legislation expands the limited live performance permit, llp, to include out door spaces like patios and courtyards and locations that currently cannot obtain this permit and the eagle tavern can't have music and had it for years before they shut down so we're creating a new ability for them and other venues to be able to have m
eight, voters and tax payers. i thank supervisor kim for having this hearing on this issue, but we should also fix our sidewalks where pedestrians walk. bulging sidewalks, broken concrete needs to be fixed so we don't have trip and fall accidents that hurt everyone. also bicycles chill. pedestrians along with skate boarders are a major problem in new district eight, and i want to talk about the signage that went up at market and guerrero. i have been voicing my concern about this for a long time, so i want to thank supervisor kim for the new signage that was put up there, sore maybe scott wiener but somebody -- definitely my coming here often enough and talking about traffic calming at that intersection is really important, but fixing the sidewalks in front of little hollywood laundromat and the orbit room and hhp would help a lot. thank you. >> thank you. >> good afternoon supervisors. my name is [inaudible]. i'm a resident of district 6 which is the most dangerous area in the city to live and to work for all the pedestrians. as a [inaudible] member our family created soma's
renter income should be tax free and should pay on the benefits that they received from the landlord and that should be market minus the actual rent. thank you. >> thank you. >> my name is (inaudible) and i am a representative of small property owners. the original concern that was raised by this ordinance was to provide remedies for the number of tic owners who are in the lottery, all of them bought their properties knowing that the lottery existed that they need to go through the process to convert the condos. whether or not they should get relief from having is a different question of whether we should make changes. the existing rules will work for the people going forward and the changes are going to have counter productive effects. people are trying to avoid evictions and i don't believe that in fact the proposed amendments are going to provide aoe visions evictions, i think that the pressure to create the tics is one that will continue, whether this board passes the ordinances or not, and that the power of home ownership is so strong that there will be more and more tics no ma
